I am at present researching an incident that happened close by to me in March 1920, in the course of the war of Independence. Following an incident in a local public house in which a young constable, John Heanue was shot dead, a group of masked men called to the house of Tom Dwyer at Bouladuff [The Ragg] near Thurles. In the ensueing incident, Dwyer was also killed. Forward to July of 1921 and a man is found dead on the road between Ballina and Bonniconlon. Around his neck is attached a label, ''Remember Dwyer and The Ragg''. The man was Anthony Foody, who a short time previously had resigned from his post as a sergeant of the RIC. Foody was stationed in the barracks close to The Ragg on the night that Dwyer was killed. His brother, Patrick was killed in the Dromkeen ambush in Limerick the previous Feburary. Any information that anyone might have on the Foody brothers I would most certainly appreciate hearing it.
